Wayne Hussey's lyrics are as powerful and evocative as always and those who like to hear a guitar melody will appreciate the accompanyment.
This album does not dissapoint. Any Mission fan who lost the faith should try it.
This album is quite possibly one of the best albums they have ever recorded, right alongside "Gods Own Medicine", "Children" and "Carved in Sand"; It's fresh, it's certainly not "old" Mission and may alienate the hard core with a love for only goth, but for everyone else this album is a real treat.
Some of the many highlights for me are "In Silhouette", a driving and damn catchy track with luscious sounding guitars that twist around, whilst Hussey's vocals pull you around and have you wrapped up. "To Love and To Kill" is a very contemporary track with amazing drum work by Steve Spring that asks the question relevant to today - how can someone love and kill with the very same hand (think iraq etc). "Blush" is a modern pop song which was released as an iTune'esque only single - how this never charted I'll never know (aside from lack of marketing from the record company). "Keep it in the Family" started life being played live only and has grown to something amazing - the layered lyrics and the stripped down guitars give the subject matter the most appropriate platform.
There is not one track off this album I do not enjoy. The quality of production, the energy and enthusiasm this band has given all lead to one of my all time fav Mish albums. It's sad therefore that due to the poor sales of this record that the band will be no more after the final 4 nights in London (feb 2008). They leave behind a legacy of amazing work, and as if to leave on a high, they give us "God Is A Bullet"
Long live The Mission - Keep the Faith.
Beladonna, Blush ,In Silouhette are classic tracks. This is the most adventurous Mission Album for years and deserves far more airplay than it has gotten in the UK. They have just played a very successsful tour. In comparison what are other bands from this era doing thats new and fresh, ie the Cure The Sisters Echo, as usual nothing.
Give credit where it is due, buy you wont be disappointed.
Sorry, Mr Reed - you sound a bit bitter and way too caustic. I have no problem with you stating your opinion of course, but I have to wonder when was the last time you heard the Mission perform live, for example? And at least, as has been mentioned before, they are still producing new material, if nothing else. Though, as far as I am concerned there is plenty else. This is the first Mission album where I have enjoyed listening to every single track - and I have all of their albums to date.
However, after several albums that even Wayne Hussey isn't exactly proud of here it is - an absolute, Bona Fide, album that all Mission fans can be
It's so much better than I expected. I love this album.
If you liked The Mission for God's Own Medicine, First Chapter, Children or Carved in Sand - this is the Fifth album - Just buy it, it's that good!!!
